O Lord Jesus Christ, who through your own suffering and death gained salvation for us here on earth, bless our missionaries whose lives are dedicated to the salvation of souls. Give them the grace to bear their poverty and suffering as You did Yours. Give them courage, an unselfish spirit of sacrifice and true confidence to spread Your divine truths. Grant them success in their endeavors, answer their prayers and give them faith to carry Your words to the ends of the earth so that all may gain eternal life with You in Heaven. Amen.
